Last time I watched Escape from Alcatraz was years and years ago on non-anamorphic dvd, if I recall. So, naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to revisit the film in HD on Netflix, and, boy, was I impressed. The image quality is very clean and natural looking for a film from 1979. Sharp (by '79 film stock standards), with lots of detail and no discernible digital noise reduction. The movie itself holds up quite well. Who better to root for in a prison break movie than Clint Eastwood, re-teaming with Dirty Harry director, Don Siegel, for the last time. Escape from Alcatraz is a moody, terse, classic that stays with you long after the credits roll. There's still no Blu-ray, so if you're a fan of the film, or just curious, I wouldn't hesitate to give it a look.
